On your mark, get set, go!

We usually participate in The Home Depot kid's work project every month. They post on their website the project for the given month ahead of time so you will know what you will be making. I generally check before we go. This month it was a racetrack. I really thought it was pretty lame and the kids would not like it. I was wrong. What do I know?

Claxton hard at work...

Julia, wise beyond her years, suggested they read the instructions first

Claxton is ready for the races. Notice the sweet little hands with dimples going after the glue, haven't quite figured out who they belong to but they sure are cute. The Starbucks cup without question is mine.

Julia's turn...

This project actually turned into a progressive project. Once we returned home we realized there might just be a problem with the race tracks looking identical. So we had a painting party.

Ready to race

Julia ran to get her harmonica to play us all a tune before the race began. And surprisingly, Claxton waited patiently during her performance.

She confidently says "I win, I win Claxton!!!" Check out his facial expression, I foresee fierce competition in the days and years to come.

Final check before the race

It's too close to call!

Photos from today

What a great day to be outside.

Let's go play over there.

I sure do like jumping and stomping my feet, don't you?

You know she wants to take more pictures. I'm so over it.

Last one, we've cooperated long enough.

Let's wiggle and make faces instead.

Dancing works too.

Hey Claxton, I found a stick.

I can't believe she found that stick before I did. I sure do want it, but I can't snatch it because Mom and Dad are watching. Wonder what she's planning to do with it. Ummm.

I might need to defend myself, so I should probably look for a stick too.

Can't find another stick close by, so I'll put this pine cone in my pocket and pull it out if needed.

Mom, this one is for you, hope you have your camera ready.

We're outta here, on to bigger and better things!

Best remedy

When you have an eye infection, nothing can remedy it better than holding Daddy's finger while eating. Nothing.

Really not worth mentioning

On the drive home from church today it started snowing and we were hoping for enough to at least throw a few snowballs at each other, but it was just a big tease. Claxton fell asleep in the car and when we woke him up he just wanted to go inside. Julia decided she would check it out. It's a good thing she did because about thirty minutes later it was all gone. Oh well, there's always next year.
